Wireless access in Japan

  08/21/09 13:27, by , Categories: Linux, Travel

Today I recieve a mail from Debian user who is about to come to Japan for business trip.
He plan to rent A2502 HSDPA wireless modem for connection.

Yes, the patch is in the mainline kernel in Aug, 2008

I see it .

The 'Unlimited' data service need a preproetary stack software on the supported OS, Windows and Mac.
My patch support a lower layer, recognize as normal modem, but do not provide such a stack.
If you want to use 'unlimited data service', you are forced to use another OS rather than Debian Linux :-(

You may want to use Debian GNU/Linux with it, you may be charged 'EXPRESS PACKET PLAN' rate.

I recommend for you to use a wifi service such as FON, FON-livedoor, mobile point, and FREESPOT,
(cf. http://www.freespot.com/) in metropolitan area, on conbination with a data card.
Livedoor which is commercial wifi provider support FON user without charge in their service area.
A mobile-point wifi can be used by daily/2W/3M ID slip, 1000Yen/2W, sold in convenience stores, 'family mart'. http://tm.softbank.jp/wlan/famiport/index.html
It is provided on many public building and restaurant such as stations, subways and fast food shop.

ものづくり がよくいわれているが、こえれからは、ことづくり= サービスである。マーケティングでは、よく物語を売るという話をしている。



 個人を支援をわりと多く行う。 ではなくて、群ユーザ、人のかたまりを支援していく、ということが必要である。フルデマンドバスの例。航空管制でも、飛行機同士がマルチエージェントで処理すれば、おもしろいことができるはず。全体最適。



  • 情報処理の導入によって作業の効率化がすすむと、余暇に振り向けられるのではなく、よい生活のためではなく、労働強化になっていないか。経済原理に従うと自然な帰結であるが、そうではない生き方を考えていかないといけないとおもう。社会のデザインを根本的にやるべきである。
  • 利便性・安全性・プライバシーは両立しない:これをどうするか、考えたい。

I love b2evolution unless it have weakness on handling character encoding on non-latin environment.
It should handle internal code rather carefully than current implementation.

The mobbler seems to be I18n-ed and translated to many languages.
I will be contribute to translate it.
